Who are your favorite game OST composers? My favorite are Richard Jacques (Sonic R, Sonic 3d Saturn, Jet Grind Radio, and other Sega games), Takenobu Mitsuyoshi (Daytonaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa), Junichi Masuda (Anything by Game Freak), and Masato Nakamura (Sonic 1 & 2). Oh, and Koji Kondo for making the famous Mario song.
Motoi Sakuraba, who composed the music for the Valkyrie Profile series. He is AMAZING.
Nobuo Uematsu... definitely a legendary composer - Final Fantasy would not be the same without him. Garry Schyman for the Bioshock series - the first and second game - but I'm not sure if he will return for Bioshock: Infinite. His music definitely set the tone for the creepiness of the games, as well as being time-period appropriate, and the songs are so memorable. They definitely convey the emotions of Rapture.
Jun'ichi Masuda, Koichi Sugiyama(Dragon Quest), Koji Kondo(Legend of Zelda), Hirokazu Tanaka(Mother series, Kirby), Keiichi Suzuki(Mother 2), Yuka Tsujiyoko(Fire Emblem series)
Whoever composes the music for LoZ, Pokemon, Super Mario and Kingdom Hearts.
